The Sea of my Childhood...

I am so lucky
to have my brother in town!
 
last weekend we took a trip to
Oak Harbor, Washington...
 
a small town on Whidbey Island
were we spent a few years of our childhood...
 
 



before
I moved to Washington State
I lived in Los Angeles,  California...
 
the beaches there so different
than the almost still waters of the Puget Sound...
 
each beautiful...
 
the beach is my happy place...
it moves me,
it humbles me,
it  grounds me.
 





the snow capped
Olympic Mountain Range in the background...
 






 
We are tied to the ocean.
And when we go back to the sea,
whether it is to sail or to watch -
 we are going back from whence we came.

It was an amazing weekend...

 
Thanks for stopping by,

Vernal Equinox...

Take the Winds of March with Beauty...
 

 
right on cue
Spring hath Sprung...
 
 
its hard to believe these sweet
tender blooms are out there in the cold wet garden..
 
they give me cause to put on a coat
and awaken my soul...
 

 
 
this beautiful calendar
which celebrates Edith Holden...
 
was given to me years ago
by my dear blogging friend Jacqueline
 
my kindred spirit
 

 



 
the beautiful drawing are pure delight...
 
and I feel connected
to Edith in some small way,
to see
 that I enjoy the same garden blooms as she did...
right on schedule... 
 




Daffodils that come before the swallow dares
and take the winds of March with beauty.

Happy Spring to You!!

Sprung....

 
 

No Winter lasts Forever;
No Spring Skips its Turn...
 
Hal Borland
 

 
on this beautiful day,
of blue skies and sunshine..
 
Spring has Sprung..
 
It was a welcome day,
glorious...
 

 
Daisy and I spent our afternoon on the porch...
 
Iris and Cosmo,
busily explored the garden....
 


 
 
It's the girls Birthday Sunday!
 
they will be 6,
time flies...
 
 
I have a guest coming into town...
so I will see you next week.
 
Have a Great Weekend...
